Goodbye Hand Milking

Hello modern technology. Goodbye hand milking. We have been hand milking our goats since they freshened in February and March. Last fall, I found a Hoegger portable milker on craigslist, but the lady I bought it from no longer had the belly pail that went with it. So, I had to wait until I could afford the belly pail and accessories. The expenditure was pretty low on the priority list. Slowly but surely it moved up the priority list. The pail and its accoutrements were delivered by UPS today and we got it set up before our evening milking. Everything worked great. Each of the does tolerated it with little suspicion.

Memphis tolerated the new milker very well
